    If you've been jabbed, live your life.  If you haven't, either have it when its your turn or manage your risk if you've opted not to have it - but live your life.

    I don't mind Djokovic tbh, he's better viewing than Nadal imo and assuming he takes the title he'll be just 1 Grand Slam behind both Federer and Nadal.
    I'd like to see Federer get at least 1 more Grand Slam, what with covid, his injuries and age being against him now, it just feels like his career has petered out a bit through no real fault of his own. 
    But yeah, Djokovic has got age and athleticism over his big two rivals and the next generation aren't really at their level yet.  If he stays injury free he could dominate for a few more years and eventually go on to claim around 25 Grand Slams imo.

    As @RoyMac5 said above, you end up kinda transfixed to it and its only later you think that maybe I shouldn't have watched that.
     
    They are quick to cut away when a 'fan' runs onto the pitch - to the point where I can't remember the last time I saw one.  Keep returning to close ups of Eriksen when he was clearly in trouble was irresponsible.  The first minute or so was understandable, he could have just fainted etc but continuing to try to get angles of CPR through players legs and close-ups of his wife crying was taking things to far and common sense should have prevailed earlier. 
    I don't particularly want to dwell on it further other than to say that it gave me an appreciation for the medical staff and the players who went above and beyond in upsetting circumstances.

    The comeback should be on the director. They could have continued to watch what was happening from further away. Whilst it was distressing to watch, especially the close-ups, it was almost impossible to stop as I was desperate to see for myself that he was regaining consciousness.

    I see Gary Lineker apologised for the images and try to pass the buck to whoever supplied them, but the BBC could have cut away earlier - it was very distressing to watch and there should be some comeback imo.
    Having said that, it did show the how quickly the ref responded to what was unfolding and the impressive work by the medical staff 👍
    Furthermore, Kjaer's role in checking Eriksen hadn't swallowed his tongue and putting him in the recovery position and Schmeichel for keeping a cool head and literally being everywhere he was needed without getting in the way was also hugely impressive.  I'm pretty sure I would have been one of the ones turning away feeling sick.

    Covid jabs will be unofficially mandated ,policed by the scared witless of dying or law suits or lack of business, people have in the main lost all grasp of sense and logic , I’m watching people walking around wide open spaces on a beautiful day wearing masks ffs ,
    just listened ( on radio) to people arguing weather we need to pour covid vaccine programmes into poor African countries , the median age in Africa is aprox 20 and the death toll from covid for the whole of African continent is I believe 85,000 whilst malaria ( treatable) kills 400000 per year there ,hiv kills 300000 per year there , tb kills many ,
    covid is kaiser soshay 
    people have lost the plot , suspended logical thinking and allowed themselves to be scared out of their lives 🤷🏻‍♂️And those not too badly affected by the rules as they are now , or even preferring life now within those rules just smugly shrug their shoulders and say why not let’s just keep thing s going for another two weeks ,perhaps a month , perhaps longer if needed 
    all in this together 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 , society is going down the pan and we are going to see more and more people at each other’s throats going forward ,,, personally don’t think that’s by accident,

    It really is shameful that we have to rely on Tory rebels to provide any sort of resistance to Government policy.
    We've literally been a one party state throughout the pandemic.
    The only thing I can remember Starmer doing over the last 15 months is 'taking the knee' in his office and his wallpaper jibe at Boris.

    One thing I am looking forward to is no longer having day by day analysis of numbers and deaths. We dont do with with other illnesses, such as the flu.
    Im sure in some years if daily reports on flu were published they could be quite shocking and make us want to shut out doors to prevent catching it.
    I dont see we will be an a covid free zone anytime soon, its going to be something we have to live with. Keep jabbing us each year, or at least the elderly and vulnerable and it will keep it under control and be another bug that sadly some each year will succumb to, just like the flu.
    I know some countries are almost covid free, but even the likes of Australia and NZ have to open their borders at some point, they cant keep locking down if a handful of people are reported positive. I think even those countries will have to accept some fatalities each year from it.

    In my opinion, if it was down to the majority of Conservatives and Boris Johnson, we would open up. 
    The deafening noise from social media, which has time and time again proven to be a noisy minority when looking at election results, is something I believe they pay too much attention to. 
    Most of the country couldn't give a duck about most of what is written on Twitter. 
    The government need to actually believe it and ignore the noise. 
    Open the ducking country up, let the economy open fully and let us live. 
    They wouldn't lose votes, which is what they fear.

    Maybe if the Government tried interprering the data rather than listening to people that care about nothing other than Covid 19, we might get back to living a normal life.

    Why not ask why they’re not being vaccinated? I’m vaccinated, but don’t believe a word they’re saying. Everything we were spoonfed about the vaccine is not true now. What’s the point of the vaccine? It doesn’t work enough.

    Saw this on Sky Sports News last night, who were pushing their zero tolerance approach as usual.  They also mentioned another member of the squad is under investigation for a tweet he made when he was 15 😕
    I guess the ECB have to be seen to be doing something but assuming there has been nothing else during the approx 10 years since he posted those tweets, missing the next game is imho punishment enough. 
    There was talk of being banned from cricket forever and re-education (re-educating what if he has done nothing during the years since those tweets were made?) which is quite frankly ridiculous and offers no route back - something that even most murderers and rapists are allowed to do in the fullness of time.

    My god your views and opinions really are extremely unpleasant and blinkered and self centred , do you see people with mental and or emotional problems as pathetic too ? My wife is on the verge of panic attacks after 5 mins wearing a mask ,I don’t understand it fully as that’s not the case FOR ME but I know it’s very real for her , I do do know she is not pathetic though

    To be honest though, I still believe we should be able to. Most people infected now are in their late 20's early 30's, I think I read the average age of infection is 28. Cases going up shouldn't mean anything. We broke the link between cases and hospitalisations. Though I actually agree on the border policy, no reason for them to drop the ball on that yet again.

    The sad but accurate part of life is that the way we lived always caused some people to die from infections. There is an acceptable level of risk, and we're well within the parameters of that. We certainly can't keep running and hiding now we've vaccinated the at risk.
